This review is from: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist PC Game
Cons: -Bad Sam Fisher voice replacement
-Uplay (enough said)
Other Thoughts: I had no problems installing the game, and updating. For some reason the desktop shortcut never started the game, but I could only start it from the Uplay program. I don't know why but it was annoying.
The gameplay was great. Aside from the terrible voice actor that replaced Sam Fisher's usual voice in all the other Splinter Cell games, the missions were tough, the multiplayer was fun, and the graphics were pretty good. It was challenging for sure.
That was until out of the blue my progress completely disappeared. Disappeared into thin air. I had finished all the side missions, and was playing the main missions. I had most of the best equipment and had a lot of it customized to perfection. Then one day I decided to load it up and keep on going. Only it didn't load my game. It started me off at the beginning with all my progress no where to be found. No saved game slots. No online forum fixes worked. It was just gone. At least twenty hours of game play like spit to the wind. Or in this case, spit in their saved game 'cloud' syncing system. If you do attempt to play this infuriating game (I usually don't write reviews but this was just too much), then for the love of honey, DONT SYNC YOUR SAVED GAMES TO THEIR CLOUD.
What the hell good is their 'cloud' if this is what happens to your saved game files?
This review is from: NBA 2K13 PC Game
Pros: Everyone else here already detailed the pros to this game pretty extensively. This is what I think in a nutshell:
1. Graphics and presentation are good but player faces could be better
2. The signature skills and skill point system.
3. Better announcer commentary
4. Awesome dunk, and moves selection
Cons: Aside from what everyone else here has said, it's what they don't include that kinda ticked me off. First, the MyPlayer in the PC version has no clothing store like the consoles have. Also in the PC version, there is no dunk contest and no 3 point contest, which really sucks when your player gets selected for it and nothing happens when all star weekend comes. It's just a bad porting job is all. How hard is it to take your time, do the job right, and even release it a little later than the console versions like other developers do?
There are also some scripting issues like getting caught in screens you're not even close to, or in shoving battles with people in the paint, or trying to block someone and your guy jumps up with the wrong hand, or kicking the ball instead of picking it up. Just little things that a person in real life would look like a buffoon doing.
Then if you get too many highlight plays, it has a weird glitch where the replays are just some quick movement some random player did, and it'll show that highlight over and over instead of the crazy dunk or alley-oop you did. Also a few bugs about getting pushed out of bounds and not getting fouled.
Other Thoughts: The last NBA 2K game I played was 2k10, and I pretty much exclusively play the My Career mode. There are some other features missing that I didn't mention in my cons section but I didn't mention them because I don't really care about them anyway.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crysis 2 PC Game
Pros: Let me just preface this by saying that I really enjoyed this game. It was fun to play, and the graphics looked great. The story was also good.
Cons: Just read all the other reviews about the butchering of the plot, dumbing down of the graphics, and restrictions of the gameplay.
Other Thoughts: It's the sequel to one of the best fps out there and one of the top 5 anticipated sequels to be released this year. Maybe if it was packaged as a different game, but since they went for a Gears of War-esque type gameplay, *spoiler* went with a way overdone 'virus strain' plot route */end spoiler*, and completely dispatched everything that made the first game so great, it's no wonder you see all the things people are complaining over. If it were a stand alone game under some other name then it would have been well recieved. As a sequel to Crysis, Crysis 2 is an epic fail.READ FULL REVIEW
